Future Doctors And Engineers? 65 Per Cent Of Syrian Refugees Can’t Even Read Or Write, Claims Academic

New statistics released by a senior German academic confirm previous forecasts suggesting the majority of so-called Syrian refugees coming to Europe are functionally illiterate and have no hope of joining the job market.


That qualifies them as excellent Liberal Party members however.

    They have a rich and vibrant “ORAL TRADITION” you racist, bigot, homophone!!!

      …carefully honed by standing in the street screaming all day long.

      • Surele Surele

        honed is right

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Nobody caught the “homophone”?

    • I am so ashamed!

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Bad Kitty!

  • Denis

    so they are only good as cannon fodder and suicide bombers! How nice!

  • Dana Garcia

    Mama Merkel must be disappointed in the news. She had such hopes for Syrians as future skilled workers…

    Oh well, at least her liberal rescue politics got her Time’s Person of the Year award.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I was just reading something that stated that Germany already lost track of about 300,000 “migrants”. While today her own political party suffered quite a few defections.
      Oh, this is going to be fun.

    But, but, butt, John McCallum says refugees will be a big boost to Canada’s economy!

    • Alain

      Perhaps he meant a big drain instead of a big boost. Just trying to give credit where none is due.

      • terrence

        I think he means all those NEW bureaucrats that MUST be hired to deal with these poor “refugees”. He is one of those delusional socialists who believe spending deficits create jobs and good economics.

        • JoKeR

          There will be lots of welfare workers needed, psychiatrists, doctors and nurses for all the diseases they bring in, police to handle the increase cultural diversity in our cities, homeless shelters for all the poor people evicted from public housing to make room for the newcomers, English-as-a-Second-Language teachers and programs, additional professors and teachers familiar with the new sharia-inclusive curricula, new seniors homes for all the old people and then we will need to import more people to take care of them…

          Think of all the great Halal restaurants that will be created, probably with government grants, loans or loan guarantees.

          These people will be the happy friendly people greeting you when you need any government service as government jobs are used to help integrate them into our new society!

          This will create lots of jobs that will boost our economy just like all the Green Energy jobs Dalton promised! A Liberal wouldn’t lie!

    Who needs literacy when there’s an app for that?

    Historically throughout the middle east the brainpower professions and advanced trades were staffed by religious minorities and immigrants in proportions far exceeding their demographic percentage within each society. Not only are these sunni adherents phony refugees, they are likely to be phony in other ways as well. Except for being carriers of polio, etc. Then they will have the real stuff.

  • ontario john

    Not a problem. The refugee kids can go to that public school in Toronto, that CITY TV News reported, where all kids have to pray islamic prayers and get lessons from the koran. Besides, the immigration minister announced today that he is increasing the aid to refugees coming here by three million dollars. So they don’t have to work.

  • DMB

    I see my property taxes increasing in the near future to pay for all the social services costs these Syrians will bring yet my local politicians and mayor are eager to receive them. That goes to show for most politicians the taxpayer is the last person they will listen too.

  • Alain

    Even if there were doctors and engineers, it wouldn’t change a thing. Islam being completely incompatible with Western liberal democracy, they would never integrate and would be a serious threat to society. There have been plenty of Muslim doctors, engineers and other educated ones who opted for jihad instead of integration.

    • Exile1981

      90% of engineers from pakistan never pass the APEGA tests to be an engineer in Alberta. While 99% of western trained ones do pass. In Alberta a lot of engineering firms run a scam. They hire muslim engineers and they take 2-3 times as long to do the work, the company pays them less because the are an engineer with out accreditation but bills them out as “engineers”.

      This is why you see very high % of muslims in “project engineering” positions; but nearly none in process positions.

    Low blow, BUT, spot on.

    Meanwhile the Govt has rolled out the welcome mat:


    Front page of today’s Toronto Star and Crescent is a full page dedicated to “Welcome Mo’s”

    Feature item on last night’s radio newscast – how a kid at a Pickering public school’s “Clothes for Mo’s” campaign has been a roaring success – he has collected over 200 pairs of mittens for Muslim refugees on his ” Christmas Mitten Tree’
